Enugu State Governor Chime & His Thugs Are Killers – Abdullahi Yunusa

Nov 1st, 2013 – Enugu State Governor Sullivan Chime & His Thugs Are Killers – Abdullahi Yunusa

Governor Chime, it is wise you retrace your steps to families you have offended, directly or indirectly and plead for forgiveness.

Sincerely speaking, I hold no personal grudge against Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State, but I unapologetically belong to the league of those who are of the view that Chime’s past are largely responsible for the truckloads, basket-full and lorry-loads of challenges competing for his soul at present.

At the risk of passing judgment on Chime, he needs urgent help from God.

He is battling with his failing health and at the moment, his wife and First Lady of Enugu state, Clara Chime, who has cried out for help, claim to have been under house arrest for several months now.

This is the sad story of a man on whose frail shoulders rest the collective destinies of indigenes of Enugu State.

I still recall with deep grief when, in 2007, Governor Chime’s overzealous aides rained live bullets on innocent, peaceful and law-abiding undergraduates of Kogi State University, KSU, Anyigba.

The students, numbering about 50, were, that fateful morning, holding a peaceful protest to draw government’s attention to the increasing number of students who were daily knocked down by reckless drivers plying the Anyigba-Ankpa-Enugu Road. Regrettably, instead of getting reprieve, sorrow, tears and blood became the song on their lips as two of the protesting students, Mohammad Meyanga and another whose name I cannot  recall now, died from the gunshot wounds they both sustained.

This is not a tale. It happened before my eyes.

The question is, what was Governor or Emperor Chime’s reaction?

Your guess is as good as mine. He silenced his conscience and hurriedly drove off, leaving the students to bury their dead colleagues.

As usual, our then barely literate Governor or ‘Governor No Problem’, Ibrahim Idris, promised to investigate the gruesome act perpetrated by his fellow Governor. As you read through these lines – this is six years after- no arrest, no report- nothing has been done to get justice for these youngsters murdered in their prime.

The little I knew about Meyanga, who until his death was a year three Banking and Finance student in KSU, is that he was the first child and the hope of his widowed mother.  I also understand that he was an indigene of Egume, an ancient town in Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi.

Those very close to the family said Meyanga was all the poor widow had on earth, so she did her best to ensure that he got a university education. Sadly, her dream of seeing her son ceremoniously bid farewell to KSU Campus upon graduation was aborted by Chime’s aides who masqueraded as security guards.

This is one case I expect well meaning rights activists to take up, and ensure that Emperor Chime and his thugs are made to face the consequences of their actions.

This is a big challenge to all qualified, sound and competent law graduates from Kogi State University, Anyigba; institute legal action against Chime  and his thugs. He must not be allowed to go scot free.

I wish to equally call on the Idris Wada led government of Kogi State to revisit this issue. An injury to one is injury to all.

Chime, while you are still battling with your self-inflicted problems, it is wise you retrace your steps to families you have offended, directly or indirectly and plead for forgiveness.

It is possible; for you still employ the same power in your hands to dry the cascading and endless tears on the face of Meyanga’s poor mother and other families you have visited horror on. The clock is ticking.

  1. My brother, thank you for this eyes opening write up. I am from Kogi State and I am aware of this heartless and barbaric act perpetrated by Governor Chime and his “Killer Squad”.
    The protest that fateful day was KSU Students against Kogi State government and not aganist Enugu State government.
    Why could this type of thing happen in a democratic setting and the perpetrators are not punished?
    Our former Governor” Ibrahim Idris was unable to say or do anything concerning the death of two promising young men until he finished his 8 years in office with little or nothing to show for it.
    As for Gov Chime, God have a plan for him that is why he is still alive. He can still correct all his wrongs before it is too late for him.

  2. Abdullahi Yunusa, your articulation are welcome idea, why is it on Governor Chime? are you happy with his numerous health/family problem. Well, having the same insight about the gruesome murder of our youths, in your theory it was recorded that the only son of a widow was killed Chime you did wrong Christ, Then how about 50 students murdered in cold blood by northern governors, how about opening fire of life ammunition on a university campus where there was no riot no demonstration. why must our judgment always sectional and tribal. We need the help of Almighty Jehovah Yaweh Shammah in all our life endeavor.

  3. Chime end is realy realy near…..but as long as he is still breathing upto this moment…he can still make life meaninful for himself….y nt confess and give ur life to christ???

  4. And as for his wife clara…madam what gose around comes around..taking another woman’s husband is nt a good thing to do…so that is ur little punishment..stay inside the house for a while…..and make sure u are a new creature b4 u come out….

  5. Bros,you are seriously rolling down the hill with monstrous speed,is time to sit up and advise yourself in a language you understand very well.

  6. Mr Yunusa, first, lawsuits are not instituted based on unreliable online posts without investigation. Secondly, as much as i do not subscribe to anybody taking a fellow human life, I think your story has no dept and is too shallow. If you really want to help this poor widow as you claimed, I suggest you
    1)Get the true story
    2)Conduct private investigation to clear all doubts
    3)Petition human right organization. You can send your petition to UN Human Rights in Abuja.
    This just might be a good starting point.

  7. lets get things straight here,if i may ask,what is the connection between the protesting students of kogi state university and the enugu state governor.

  8. I am not defending gov.Chime .But your story is incompelit .What has brought ksu. Student under security check of enugu state? 2 did it hapen inside kogi state. 3.
